    Capitalism doesn't work and only greedy rich boys benefit from the immoral capitalist system.
    haha. Hahahaha.

    I like your sense of humor.

    you have excellent taste in jokes. Truly, you do.

    please, do tell me, do you have a comic gig coming up? if so, I would be highly interested in attending.

    once again, this is just to say, what an excellent joke you made there.

    first class humour.

    Name one country that has grown prosperous?That is just a delusion. America is one of the unhealthiest nations in the world with 36 million homeless people; and over half the population are poor.

    Meanwhile cuba has a strong health system with a system that works for all.
    America is far more prosperous than the Eastern bloc nations. If you don't like America, then what about the UK, Germany, the Nordic countries (although they all use different models of capitalism)?

    Meanwhile the Cubans remain poor and part of a one-party state.

    Id say it's the rudimentary free capitalist markets which the 'communist' Chinese implemented which have worked, not the communist methodology.

    The way backwards would be more correct, that level of state control stifles innovation and productivity.

    China still call themselves commies but they aren't anymore. It's capitalism in a one party state these days.

    China has not been communist since the 1970's. It is today a somewhat capitalist country.

    Prior to that I said that human self-interest always gets in the way. You chose to avoid it and label me a Nazi instead.

    I also drink swan's blood and shoot foxes on weekends.
    That doesn't change the fact you a moronic capitalist posh boy who thinks he's better than everyone. You tory.

    I don't think I'm better than everyone, just communists. Especially you.

    Also, not a Tory.

    we also have to remember how well other Communist societies have gone on and the atrocities that were committed in the name of communism.


    Communism only serves to make the rich Poorer and the poor Poorer. just because the gap is closer does not mean that It is better.




    And for the record Hitler WAS NOT socialist
    Are you forgetting the atrocities that were committed in the name of capitalism? Very few atrocities have had anything to do with communism in fact.

    Communism serves everyone. Capitalism just looks to make the rich richer.

    Sounds like your mixing up communism and capitalism AGAIN. Communism only serves the ruling elite.

    Yeah look at vietnam. And how prosperous the poor and rich are. Oh wait they are not.

    A lower gap does not mean it is always better for people.
    I would rather have people earning billions and me earning 40k a year that rich people earning 1 mil a year and me earning 14k a year.

    But i've been a well fed council tenant all through my childhood, those things are protected by the current system.
    This is a control mechanism employed by the capitalist class.

    The welfare state was a compromise used to prevent left wing revolution in the west.

    You are still being exploited.

    Also, you have taken an individualized perspective.

    What about children which are like you who live in worse conditions than you were brought up in? If you do not care about them then you will never understand communism.

    Please not this again.

    Been proven time and again to fail abysmally.

    'b-but that wasn't true communism'

    Human self-interest will always get in the way.

    Why is the abolition of property rights in my self interest?
    It's not.

    It's in our collective interest.

    Well...if that is the only variable that indicates the failure of an economic system then capitalism is also a failure, no?
